Ballard is home to ‘Best Brew Pub’

Posted by Geeky Swedes on September 25th, 2009

Sorry Capitol Hill, looks like Ballard has the best Brew Pub in town.

Earlier this week, Capitol Hill Seattle pointed us to the Washington Beer Blog poll that had their Elysian pub in a tight race with our Maritime Pacific and the Jolly Roger Taproom. We posted the story and it seems Ballard is proud of our little watering hole. As you can tell from the graph above, the Ballard joint jumped way out in front of the competition.

    Maritime is good beer but I think alot of the reason it won is because Ballard has so many internet-philes that went and voted ;)

    You're probably right, elena. But Capitol Hill had the same opportunity. They had this blogged too. Maybe Ballard just cares more about beer.

    Somebody had to win… what would have been the reasoning if Cap Hill had come out in front on the voting?

    Hey, if there's anything we know in Ballard, it's good beer! :-)

    That Elysian had received the most votes and therefore won?

    Purely because Georgetown Brewery doesn't have it's own pub yet (9lb Hammer not withstanding). However, looks like they're working on it.

    That's so cool! Now we should print up flyers and post them all over UW's campus so all the college kids can come out west and see us! Maybe even rent fancy apartments when they graduate!

    In addition to good booze, Ballard (D-17) also has some excellent AA meetings.

    Maritime does make good beer, but lately I have been going to SODO and getting beer at Two Beers Brewery. The beer is great and the setup is perfect for watching a game when the tasting room is open on Thursday and Friday afternoons.

    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
    you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates.

    now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which
    hosting company you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I
    must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest
    a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
